    Bone Folder
   Acrylic Paint

Aluminum Foil/ Aluminum Foil Tape

Things to decorate

US approx. measurements 2 pieces 4” x 6”with center piece 1  1/8” x 6”
Gurkiss says to trim the cardboard to these measurements.
She cut card stock slightly larger than cardboard.
She quotes that the color of cardstock plays no role because it will be covered.
Glue card stock to cardboard leaving an even amount of space as shown in photo.

Cut corners, fold edges in and glue.

Front cover

Gurkiss says; one need not think about colors or anything like that.
She covered the book cover with aluminum tape and presses down with a bone folder.  Aluminum tape was broken a little bit around the letters but it does not matter because it is not visible.

Paint with acrylic paint or rustic color. Dab on paint of your choice. If you want more color paint again and dab with paper towels.

It will look like this when finished.

She adds a box; then applies to inside of cover.
